Training Schedule 2022/2023

Training Schedule for 2022/2023

The senior NBVA Training Squads have developed into coach selected, tiered training levels running for 6 week blocks. There will be three levels available to both men and women with squads of 8* players for each block. Please see below Training Schedule for the 2022/2023 Season. 

The purpose of these groups is for competition-level training, and hence your selection will be based on performance. Players will only be permitted to participate in a single training level to sustain the Progression Pathway.

How do I sign up for Squads?

If you wish to join the 2022/23 NBVA Training  (Block 1 Spring) Squad, please complete the expression of interest (EOI) survey accessible via this link by Sunday 25 September 2022 (6pm):

To secure a squad position, you will need to be selected during the trial period for the NBVA training squads. Please see the calendar for the next trial date.

Your entry to the squads will also be considered on your previous NBVA/VNSW Tour results, and you will be given an opportunity to join a session likely to be your level. 


How are selections made?

Squads will be limited to 8* players for each block. These selections will be made based on the NBVA Selection Process considering the NBVA Training Squad Criteria. You will also be expected to adhere to the Training Member Requirements.

The NBVA Senior Squad Training vision provides a progressive pathway for NBVA members to train within to compete. If you do not compete in tournaments, logically it follows that you are then precluding yourself from the selection in the NBVA squads. 

What is the costs?

The cost of each block will be equivalent to the number of training sessions within that block.  For example, a 6-week block for the men’s group 1, will be twice per week, will cost $240 upfront. 

What happens is I have to miss a training session?

Each player will be required to pay up-front for the 6-week block (i.e. twice per week, will cost $240 upfront).  If a player cannot attend a session, NO REFUNDS will be allowed if you miss a session over the 6 week block

For COVID-19 health reasons NBVA will warrant a refund based on case-by-case if you provide a health certificate by emailing cc Coach.

Will there be trials for the Winter Squads?

There will be no tryouts for Winter Squads of the 2022/23 season. If you participated in the previous blocks, you will be able to continue with your previous squad, with exception of players to be upgraded at the discretion of the coaches committee.

Are these the final dates?
